What's Cookin' This Week (Feb 14 - 20, 2011)?
This week will be an easy one as far as meal planning goes. I will be out of town in a few days so the cooking will be on someone else - hooray!
Therefore, I will keep things simple and only try one new meal and two new snacks. However, I'll still be posting great, new recipes for you to enjoy along with a hilarious learning tip too! Here's how the calendar will go:
Monday, Feb. 14 - Valentine's Day: We're having takeout and eating dinner at home- either sushi or Greek food. I will, however make my husband's favorite dessert for him - banana toffee squares (Recipe is in my cookbook).
Tuesday, Feb. 15 - My Homemade Slow Cooker Chili
Wednesday, Feb. 16 - Greek Chicken Gyros and Quinoa Salad - This is very NEW for me. I've never cooked with quinoa or make my own tzatziki sauce before!
Thursday, Feb. 17 - Traveling - will eat out
Friday, Feb. 18 - Family Dinner Outing
Saturday, Feb. 19 - Traveling - will eat out
Sunday, Feb. 20 - Traveling - will eat out
Monday, Feb. 21 - Eat from freezer - Unstuffed Peppers Casserole (Recipe is from my cookbook)
Here are the snacks that I will make before we do some traveling:
(1) Cranberry Oatmeal Bars - These look yummy. Best of all, I have all the ingredients on hand!
(2) Dirt Cupcakes - I'm making these for a group of kids - for a playdate that I'm hosting on Wednesday
(3) No-Bake Granola Bars - If I have time I will make a new batch of these to bring with us while we travel over the weekend!
Everyone have a wonderful week! I am going to enjoy my time away from the kitchen and the opportunity to read for hours in the car!
